What You Can Expect

Alesund Shore Excursion: City Sightseeing Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Enjoy a comprehensive view of Alesund on your Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Leave your cruise ship behind at the Ålesund port, and head into town for your hop-on hop-off tour by City Sightseeing bus. Show your voucher to the driver, and then explore the city from the comfort of your double-decker bus. Plug in your headset to hear audio narration about the sights, and gaze out at the Sunnmøre Alps, flanked by the Norwegian fjords. 

Your pass is valid for a total of 24 hours, so use the service as you wish to hop on or off wherever you like. Use it to visit attractions such as Ålesund Church, the Art Nouveau Center, the Sunnmøre Museum and more; or disembark to stretch your legs on a seafront stroll and admire the city’s art nouveau, or jugendstil, architecture. The 400-odd-step climb up to Fjellstua Kafé is worth the exertion; commanding mountain views await.

All the 10 stops on this hop-on hop-off tour are located within a 10-minute walk of the port, so you decide the time to return to your cruise boat in Ålesund. Allow yourself ample time to enjoy the excursion and ensure your timely return to port. This excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy.

Love these hop on - hope off buses. You have a lot of flexibility in seeing the city. We usually ride the entire route and note which stops look most interesting to us. On the second time around, we get off to see the places that are of interest. Drivers are helpful in helping you find the places you'd most like to see.

Another great tour. Good English commentary with a good mix of information. With two cruise ships in port at the same time it could have been chaos but the ticketing was handled quickly and efficiently with no delays.

Great tour. Free WiFi on bus allowed us to share bus ride/sights with family 12000 miles away. Great service.
Please alter website so number of persons /tickets can be printed on one page we had lost page two indicating two tickets but operator accepted readily. Great experience. Ray Simpson

The hop-on hop-off buses were good. The only thing was that when there are a few cruise ships, the buses get crowded and you have to wait for the second bus. They need more buses making the trip.
